    V Drivers in MA are blind...

    Seriously. And this time I was in my '09 heading to the Eve of Destruction at Thompson Speedway in CT. I saw a black V1 on I-395N in Webster as I was going S yesterday around 5PM. A long time before we passed so he had time to look. Blind as a flippin' bat.

    Wake up you goobers...

    Maybe I'm missing something here, but what exactly is the other V supposed to be looking for? I have not seen another V in MA since I acquired my own.

    Re: V Drivers in MA are blind...

    I've seen maybe...two or three since I bought mine last summer. One of them I saw in Warwick, RI at a light. It was an 06 or 07, but was repainted in that V2 pearl color and man, it looked good. I was surprised how much I liked it. I was in my dirty 93 Caprice so there wasn't much I could do...

    I passed a Black V1 moving about 1 mph stuck at a light (I was turning, she was going straight), could not get the drivers attention at all, some people are either just clueless, or don't care about other V's

    Are you sure it was a V? I've seen a wannaV in RI in the pearl white with the grilles...

    If I recall it had 6 lugs and even a stock V exhaust. Someone would have gone through a lot of trouble if it's a fake. Sounded like a V8, too...

    Different breed of buyer. The car comes in automatic. No doubt its a phenominal car in this form, but it's not the pure enthusiast version.


    Kev- you need to bust a u turn on that next time. Upgrade to a camera phone too..

    We need some way to identify the auto's from outside

    Re: V Drivers in MA are blind...

    I've given up on this. Esp V2 guys. Even when on the highway sitting in traffic next to each other. The first few years I had the car I was / am a fanatic and would go up to other V owners to share the love and they'd brush me off so what ev. Two years ago I was in Pathmark and lilg saw my car in the lot, came in and found me. We saw another V in the lot and waited for the guy. When he approached his car we tried to talk to him, he brushed us off and basically said our cars weren't Vs. 'nuff said.

    I meant snooty second-gen V1 owners.

    Seems like some of the guys who've been drooling over getting a V1 and waiting till they became in reach are the ones that think their behinds produce no foul order. Not the second-gen V1 owners on here, mind you. They, at least, acknowledge the rest of us while on the road.

    It was a large intersection (near the mall) and he was turning left. I was in a straight lane and I didn't really feel like whipping out my camera phone.

    I'm third gen. And I'm sure I'm not the only one. At least the 2nd owner is on these boards (STS-V department...).
